'Cummer 2017 Beaches Gala' to benefit the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens

Cummer Beaches, an affinity group of the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens, will host its second annual Gala to benefit the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens.  This year’s theme is “A Night At The Museum” featuring artwork reproductions from the Cummer Museum’s permanent collection and artwork designed by school students who have visited the museum.

Patrons will enjoy a cultural feast for the eyes and the appetite at this Black-Tie event with entertainment from the Jacksonville University Musical Theatre and will include cocktails, dinner, and a silent auction of Museum programs (that attendees can underwrite).  “This event is our annual fundraiser to help bring Beaches and St. Johns County students to the Museum for school tours and education,” said Becky Johnson, President of Cummer Beaches.

The mission of Cummer Beaches is to support the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens and enhance the membership experience for beaches residents. Cummer Beaches encourages interest in and support for the artistic and cultural significance of the Museum; raises funds for the overall mission of the Museum, specifically children’s educational field trip visits; and invites members to participate in various activities that connect them with other art and garden enthusiasts in the Beaches area.
